Have you ever had that moment where you suddenly realize just how much time has flown by? Well, prepare yourself for a amusing TV moment that perfectly captures the shock and disbelief that comes with the passage of time.

In this four-panel screen capture from what appears to be a television show or movie, we witness a series of reactions that will leave you in stitches. The first panel shows a young woman with long blonde hair, dressed in a white dress, standing on green artificial turf. She looks down with a surprised expression at another young woman who has just collapsed to the ground. It's as if the ground beneath her has given way, and she can't believe her eyes.

The text overlay in this panel reads, "30 years ago isn't the '70s..." And that's when the realization starts to sink in. The camera angle stays the same in the second panel, but now the woman on the ground has her arms by her side, looking more relaxed as if accepting the shocking information. The woman standing appears more composed, as if she's come to terms with the truth. The overlay text in this panel reads, "It's the '90s."

But the surprises don't end there. In the third panel, the standing woman is out of the frame, and our focus shifts solely to the woman lying on the ground. She looks inert, lost in deep thought, as if pondering the vastness of time. The text overlay in this panel states, "The Mummy is 25 years old." Can you believe it? A classic film that once felt so new is now a quarter of a century old.

And just when you think you've wrapped your head around that, we arrive at the fourth and final panel. The shot remains the same, but now the face of the woman on the ground fills most of the frame. Her eyes are closed, and she wears a pained expression, as if grappling with some emotional or cognitive dissonance. The text here hits you with another bombshell: "Jurassic Park is over 30." Yes, you read that right. One of the most iconic movies of all time is more than three decades old.

The progression of images and overlay text in this TV moment perfectly captures the rollercoaster of emotions that comes with realizing just how quickly time slips away from us. It's a mix of surprise, acceptance, contemplation, and even a tinge of sadness. But through it all, it reminds us of the importance of cherishing the moments we have and making the most of the time we are given.

So, the next time you catch yourself reminiscing about a beloved movie or a nostalgic era, remember this TV moment and embrace the bittersweet joy that comes with the passing of time. After all, life is a journey that we must embrace, no matter how quickly the years may fly by.

Why must you hurt me so?


jurassic park still slaps though.


Wil Wheaton is older now than Patrick Stewart was when Captain Picard became Locutus of Borg.


Star Trek: The Next Generation ended in 1994. 30 years ago, on May 23rd. Wil Wheaton is older now than Patrick Stewart was when he played Jean Luc Picard.


You're older than you've ever been and now you're even older.


It's weird how time sneaks up on you despite being literally the most predictable thing in the universe.


Jurassic park came out 31 years ago. There could be people that are born after, and have never seen it. They could be married and have a kid or two.


City of Heroes first launched in early 2004. I still play it. A few weeks ago, I was asked a question about a very niche PvP mechanic and commented that since I started playing in 2005, I'd never heard that term. The person asking mentioned they hadn't even been alive in 2005. That's when all my hair suddenly went gray.


Hey, we have plenty of life left to live. Everything seems old to the young, don't mind them.


Maybe I’m alone in this but I’ve never viewed old as bad. I remember being in elementary school seeing Jessica Tandy in Batteries Not Included and thinking she was such a nice lady. And Dame Maggie Smith in Hook who seemed old as Wendy then but wasn’t actually old until the Harry Potter movies - but still amazing. I always loved Harry Dean Stanton even though he always seemed “old”. In my 20’s I worked with a lot of old people in the clinic I worked at and they all still felt like in their 20’s
